Weeth Community Primary School has a duty of care to ensure the protection of children and therefore has a responsibility to pass on concerns to Children's Social Care ( Single Referral Unit).
Miss Furnish is the school's Designated Safeguarding Lead. Should you have any concerns regarding the safety of any of the children at Weeth School please see her.
If she is not available please speak to Miss Sargent (Deputy Safeguarding Lead) or Mrs Peacock (Shadow Deputy Safeguarding Lead).
Our school community has a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. This means that we have a Child Protection Policy and procedures in place which are available on the web site or from the school office on request. All staff including our volunteers and supply staff must ensure that they are aware of our procedures; parents and carers are welcome to read these. Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will always ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with their parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that this is not in the child's best interests.
